A money plant on our windowledge. Duplicated photo, it’s tortuous shape given extra twists by mirroring it. The pale green leaves are a nasturtium that was planted inside. I hasn’t matured in time to produce flowers. I think this looks like a green carving or sculpture. It’s like an odd insect about to pounce, perhaps a preying mantis.
Drawing I did a while in Artrage oils. Then duplicated it. I don’t know where these ideas come from or even if they are any good. But I’m constantly creating and learning. I can’t help it and I can’t stop. I just get a buzz out of art and creativity.
Experimenting again with dragon ideas. This one is made up of a drawing coloured in with different nail varnishes and then duplicated and mirrored after adding texture digitally. The blurred section had the words ‘dragon scales’ written on it but I decided to blur that out.
Each of these experiments will be added to a portfolio of images that will go towards my final major project for college.
I made a digital drawing based on the #bandofsketchers prompt of ‘hole’. Used my finger and a symmetry tool to create the pattern, then varied it using photodirector app.
The darker, softer image was the first, the other two were edited in photodirector and the images were duplicated in the Layout app.
Amid grey billows.
Like green dragons
Or flattened chickens.
Caught in a net of cloud…
These were on my memories from three years ago so I thought I would share them. Yet again a combination of doodling and filters. Probably drawn with a stylus. Using Sketch, sketcher free and ArtRage oils. I like drawing faces in profile.
I’ve found I usually draw left facing profiles for faces and animals. In this case I’ve switched a couple of them round to see how it changes the image. Is it something to do with if you are left or right handed? I don’t know.
I ccan’t work out where the diamond ends and the surround starts. I tried zooming in, but the image is too fuzzy so I duplicated it several times. I think the setting is meant to look like flowers. Anyway it makes an interesting pattern..
Playing with filters again. I started out with a photo of the back of my writing pad that is covered in dots. I duplicated it in layout app, then changed it in Instagram and Photodirector. The effect is like reverb in music, like a feedback loop I think, where patterns that are hidden are revealed by the filters.
Blackberries, before they are ripe, before the sun ripened them. Turning them juicy and sweet. I thought this image that I’d duplicated and mirrored made them look almost like insect eyes.
There are patterns that seem to replicate each other in the world and the universe. By playing with images you can get some startling effects.
I can’t remember how I created this, I have mirrored and duplicated it, but I can’t remember all the processes it went through. If I tried to do this again I don’t know if I could duplicate it. Memory fails me. I’m not sure how old this is, it just popped up on my phone when I was deleting some large photo files. It’s weird, but I like it.
